Hate Is Contageous FINISHED by Centi Hate Is Contageous FINISHED by Centi
EDIT!!!! For all the people trying to inform me that I drew a peace symbol for an illustration of hate. I shall now educate you.

1. yes the ORIGINAL symbol represented peace. It can be found over any number of buddhist temples and the such and looks like this. [link] Note...it is counterclockwise in its rotation...

2. I am very much aware hitler stole the symbol...but, he mirrored it as the nazi symbol. The mirrored version in this picture is the nazi symbol and rotates clockwise. Illustration: [link]

so please...please...do not assume I had no idea this symbol was stolen, and please realize they are mirrors of each other.

end edit



"Hate Is Contageous. Its a disease that poisons and corrupts the soul. Innocence lost, our children are listening"

Thats is whats written over and over in the background. I want to let you all know that this is in no way intended to be a racially offensive artwork but rather intended to make a statement of how our hatred and ideals are passed ont our children.

posted in political since there isnt a current events section...I personally think this category should be socio political and not just political

I drew this after seeing an interview on television with a band named Prussian blue. It consists of two twin girls, very young, very innocent looking, with a soft sweet sound to their music, until you listen to the lyrics. Brought up by a white supremecist mother and grandfather the girls were raised to believe blacks were not human...therefore dont have souls the same as them...which is where the phrase on the girl's scarf "he died for me, not you" came from.

Watching these girls broke my heart to realize that two girls that look innocent on the outside are so corrupted by their caretakers ideals...and it made me want to cry.

The characters in this image are both to a degree intended to be children, and siblings, the boy older and farther along in his path to corruption, but the girl vastly unaware of the degree of wrongness in her holding such a doll in her hands. Spatterred with blood textures in the background to show that only pain and negative results come from such opinions.

I forget who I got the blood brushes from so I pre apologize for not properly crediting you. I hope at least a few of you actually read the description. Thank you.

Would you object to me getting someone to custom make the scarfs for personal wear? or the males t shirt?

... considering the picture is supposed to be anti hate, but the characters themselves are supposed to portray said hate... I'd rather not have that message being worn about...

Amazing piece....
It's so sad what hates bringing us to now...I just visited the Holocaust meusuem last week...And it's just amazing that their could be so much hate in this world.
I just looked up the Prussian blue and I was disgusted...The first picture that comes when you look them up is them wearing shirts with a Hitler smiley face on it....It's just sick...

I like how the brother character is resting his hand on her shoulder as if he is saying its okay to be this way and their right. The warm red tones are eye catching because they normally make you think of rage and hate which fits this image perfectly. In general I adore the character designs and the colouring is brilliant. I really think this is a clearly thought out piece of art and I liked the artist comments that went with it. If I was going to Critique something, it would be that maybe a less static pose might make the image more appealing, but I don’t think it really matters in the end. :love:

I needed this right now. I was looking for Nazi Chibis, just 'cause I saw a Chibi of the Nazi from "The Producers" once and I was looking for it again. I came upon a few Chibis. And then I found an entire subculture of Fake Neo-Nazis on here who either don't know that the fascists would probably consider them filth behind their backs or send them to camps for some reason or other. But what really hit me was when I saw that these were kids. a 17, 14, 16, I almost cried when I saw a girl who had painted a swastika on her stomach. Hate is a terrible thing...

Wow, that is just...sad and infuriating. Some people are just plain sick. When are they going to learn that they don't get to say who isn't a person. We're all of the same race, the human race. There are differences, but at base level everyone is the same...regardless of skin color and physical structure. Their mother and grandfather should be ashamed of themselves--if their hearts weren't so frozen. I'm sorry you had to see such a thing on the news, Centi. I don't think I would be able to see that without hitting the ceiling.

This kind of reminds me of an awesome quote from one of my favorite videogames ever: You criticize and attack people for their birth and upbringing - things they cannot change. It is you who are not human.

If those two girls had realized that the Prussian government encouraged non-German settlement of their eastern provinces, and supported religious freedom (or free for that time and place), they'd be running away from that word.

I'm pagan. I want my sacred cross back.

And this is a beautiful piece, just art-wise.

It is actually wrong, that hitler just mirrored the swastika. Both the left-facing and the right facing swastika was/is used as a religious/luck symbol. The swastika you used looks more like an "old" swastika, not the nazi one.

But what the hell, I really like the intention of the picture.
